Professional Childminding in Calne

Little Acorns Childminding Group provide support to childminders working within the Calne and surrounding areas. Since then we have expanded our services to offer more regular group meetings. We also provide business and social support assisting with information on childminding plus offering advice on training and other help to further develop your skills as a childminder.

We are a membership-based group who work independently but meet up every Thursday at Cherchill Village Hall, provide activities for the children to engage in and opportunities for childminders to chat and discuss any issues.

All members of the group have to:

  • be fully Ofsted-registered
  • have their own public liability insurance.

We take it in turns to run activities such as cooking, junk model, card making on a rota system. All members also take it in turns to make refreshments and wash up. All members also help with setting up and clearing away activities. We also occasionally ask guests to take part in group sessions, offering specialised activities or services which members or the group itself may benefit from.

It costs £5.00 to become a member, with monthly sessions charged at £8.00 per month, which includes all advertising costs. In addition to becoming part of the group, you are also entitled to reduced NCMA membership fees.

Sessions are normally run during term-time only.

If you would like to join us, or would like further information on Little Acorns, please feel free to contact us.

If you're a childminder in Calne, Devizes, Lyneham, Compton Bassett, Derry Hill or any other neighbouring area, membership is highly recommended as we are always getting enquiries from parents looking for childcare. For such a small outlay you get so many benefits and can become part of a wider social network in the area!
